Employability’s Simpler Than You Think
If employability seems daunting, inaccessible or time-consuming, rest assured that it’s not. It can slip seamlessly into your student life and will pay dividends in the long run.
We will show you how to integrate the process into your University experience to really boost your employability and get the most benefit from your time at Warwick.
Put simply, employability relates to your ability to find and retain employment, as well as helping you to succeed when you are in your job. It’s about empowering yourself with the skills, experience and training that employers value by making you as employable as possible and opening doors.
The process of building your employability will benefit your development in the short as well as long term, helping you secure internships and work experience as well as helping you get graduate employment.
The process of building your employability facilitates all career pursuits, regardless of sector or type of work. Rather than being a cumbersome process, building your employability is simple and easy – you find opportunities, you structure them into your diary, and you record evidence. It’s that simple.
